Local non-profit, Destination Caldwell wants to attract more visitors and business to Caldwell and they have done so by opening up a new trail through the Snake River Valley called The AgVenture Trail.
The new 40-mile loop trail is free and self-guided, which takes you through 12 farms, orchards, pastures and produce stands from Downtown Caldwell, all across the valley. Along the way, visitors can take classes from local farmers, pick produce, stop at 6 farmers' markets, eat some farm-to-fork meals and even go horseback riding. There is so much to do that you can make it a one-day trip or spend the whole weekend there!
This new adventurous experience is really unique to our Boise area as it allows visitors to see, taste and experience food right from the source of where it comes from and really will allow them to appreciate and feel connected to the local farms and land they live on.
It is a way to escape the city and really get your feet wet in the simple-life and meeting local farmers, workers, and chefs along the way.
Bringing agritourism to Caldwell and surrounding Boise areas is great for local businesses. The farmers and business owners are able to share their passion with those who stop by and to show off their hard work - for some, after many generations.
We think this is such a great thing for our local agriculture scene and we hope that the AgVenture Trail will attract more visitors to our area, gives support to our local businesses, inspires more entrepreneurs and inspires the locals to appreciate our land and the passion and love that goes into keeping our roots.
